As part of my half-hearted attempt at minimizing and simplifying my life, I took an honest look at the quantity of sketchbooks I have. Some have been partially used, but none of these are full. So I hope not to buy anymore until there is a significant dent in this pile! Yes, I need to get going and sketch more!
Thanks Claire! It seems so many of my online sketcher friends have the same issues! Hey, there’s much worse thing in life than amassing sketchbooks. 🙂
Ah…. you really got me to chuckle at the sight of your pile of sketchbooks. I too have an abundant supply of journals and other art books. I’m trying to pick up and do more and ‘use what I have’. I look forward to seeing your sketches to come….
Hi Karen, what a great idea! I’ve donated other art supplies to a teacher friend, but really did NOT realize how MANY of these I had until piling them here! So thanks for the suggestion, now the excess will definitely go to others that need them more than me.
I had a similar pile last year and found it pretty intimidating. I picked five that had paper I really liked and donated the rest to the elementary school art teacher to give to students. Worked out pretty well!
